The renowned chef, restaurateur and TV star will get another taste of Western Australia at the Taste Great Southern festival.
Marco Pierre White will be heading back to WA in March as the star attraction at the 2018 Taste Great Southern festival.
The famously straight-talking chef will appear at the Albany Food and Wine Festival and the Fervor x Three Anchors dinner on March 17. He'll reportedly spend the following day exploring the region.
The festival, from March 8-25, will include food and wine events in Albany, Denmark, Mt Barker, Porongurup, Frankland River, Katanning and Kojonup.
Among the events already announced are a food and wine journey through the Great Southern's sub-regions at Singlefile Wines in Denmark, a long-table lunch at the Yongergnow Malleefowl Centre in Ongerup, and a comparative wine tasting pitting Mt Barker cabernet sauvingons against wines from Bordeaux.
"Marco Pierre White has been one of the biggest names in the culinary world for decades and it is a massive coup to have him appear at Taste Great Southern," said Tourism Minister Paul Papalia.
Often cited as the first celebrity chef — despite his well-documented disdain for that term — White has previously praised WA produce during a past visit to WA to headline the Margaret River Gourmet Escape.
